PURPOSE To investigate the interactions of implant diameter, insertion depth, and loading angle on stress/strain fields in a three-dimensional finite element implant/jawbone system and to determine the influence of the loading angle on stress/strain fields while varying the implant diameter and insertion depth. MATERIALS AND METHODS Four finite element models were created, which corresponded to two implant diameters and two insertion depths. The jawbone was composed of cortical and cancellous… CONTINUE READING
